Dirk finished tonight's game with 19 points and 20 rebounds. With one more point, it would have given him his first 20-point, 20-rebound game since May 19, 2006 in the Game 6 semifinal loss to the Spurs. He had 26 points and 21 rebounds in that game. He hasn't had one in the regular season since he had 25 points and 22 rebounds in a loss to the Lakers on April 3, 2003.
Here's the weird part: the Mavs are only 4-3 when Dirk goes 20-20. His first four were within seven weeks of each other in February-April of 2002.
